Boston University has hired Chris Dyment as its new Director of Hockey Operations, according to multiple sources on Monday night.
The former Terrier defenseman was named the assistant coach at Bentley in July, but left after less than a month to take the position on the staff at his alma mater. The Reading, Mass. native scored 20 goals and added 53 assists over his four-year BU career, which included captaining the 2001-2002 team as a senior.
Dyment enjoyed a six-year minor pro career that saw stops in the AHL, ECHL and overseas in Italy. Prior to taking the job at Bentley, Dyment served as a coach with the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs organization.
Dyment fills the void that resulted when Scott Young was promoted from Director of Hockey Operations to assistant coach. Albie O'Connell was also promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach following the departure of Steve Greeley, who left to take a position in the front office with the New York Rangers.
